Does anybody have a sense as to which fleet these will be replacing?
In a first line it's very clear
The four three-car units replace ABe 4/6 52-54 in regional trains in the
Swiss part
The four four-car units replace ABe 4/8 45-48 in international trains.

But this doesn't answer the question if SSIF will buy these 7 trains as
a complement to their technically identical ABe 4/6 61-64, to finally
replace their ABe 8/8 21-24 (21-22 ex-FART) and ABe 6/6 33-35 (ex-FLP)

If they were to oust those rather nasty SSIF "Panorama" units (ones
with the Toblerone-style profile!), then I for one would not
weep....
These are the most recent vehicles of SSIF. thus you can't expect them to be replaced soon. Unfortunately.
